Hi Leonidas,
good to have another archaeologist here. I think you should look for
some work done by Benjamin Ducke in the past few years. I'm quite sure
he built an XTENT modeling procedure for GRASS, that he presented at CAA
2007 in Berlin.

Should you find what you need, may I ask you to add a brief summary on
the "Quantitative Archaeology Wiki" at http://wiki.iosa.it/ under the
"Spatial Analysis" section? It would be of great help to have such
documentation collected and easily retrievable for other researchers.

Best regards,
